UPDATE: SUSPECT APPEARS TO BE BARRICADED IN BIG BEAR AREA ... MORE INFORMATION AT http://www.onecitizenspeaking.com/2013/02/manhunt-ended-christopher-dorner-cornered-two-shot-in-standoff.html
It appears that a 33 year-old former LAPD Officer who was terminated by the Los Angeles Police Department has gone rogue and is threatening to kill other law enforcement officers until the LAPD admits they made a “wrongful firing” mistake. He is armed and dangerous as he is the prime suspect in killing two innocent victims – one the daughter of the person who unsuccessfully defended him at his police board hearing. The suspect left a long explanation – termed by the authorities to be a “manifesto” – on his Facebook page.

Women delivering newspapers in Torrance shot in manhunt for ex-cop
Two women who were shot by Los Angeles police in Torrance early Thursday during a massive manhunt for an ex-LAPD officer were delivering newspapers, sources said. The women, shot in the 19500 block of Redbeam Avenue, were taken to area hospitals, Torrance police Lt. Devin Chase said. They were not identified. After the shooting, the blue pickup was riddled with bullet holes and what appeared to be newspapers lay in the street alongside.
A second shooting, involving Torrance police officers, occurred about 5:45 a.m. at Flagler Lane and Beryl Street in Torrance. No injuries were reported in that incident. Chase said that in both instances police came across vehicles they thought were similar to the one Dorner is believed to be driving. Neither vehicle was Dorner's. "Now it appears neither of them are directly related," Chase said. "In both of them, officers believed they were at the time." <Source>
In both cases, the police officers should be either terminated, reassigned or extensively re-trained. This type of non-thinking aggressive behavior in any police force is intolerable. It brings back memories of a innocent drunk Long Beach resident playing with a pistol-grip garden nozzle SHOT TO DEATH BY LONG BEACH POLICE WITHOUT EVER BEING CHALLENGED! In that case, the police were hiding and in a position of concealment, never once making their presence known to the drunk man on the porch.
Bottom line …
While this former Officer appears to be suffering from some type of stress-related mental impairment and needs to be brought into custody before more innocent people are killed, let us not overlook the details provided in his “manifesto” and call for an investigation of the LAPD command staff. Just because this former officer is clearly over-the-top, does not mean that some of what he says is not true. As we have seen with the Los Angeles Sheriffs Department, not all is as it seems on the surface and there is a degree of command staff malfeasance and misbehavior.
Let honest, hard-working and dedicated police officers do their jobs. And weed out those who abuse their authority – at all levels.
